The Bauchi State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Nuhu resigned from his office on Wednesday 23rd May,2018; following his “contemplation to step aside…in order to free his conscience…to avoid dampened spirit and waning zeal as it relates to his official engagements.”
According to Yakubu Adamu, Alhaji Nuhu’s Special Assistant on Communication Matters, the Deputy Governor of Bauchi tendered his resignation through the office of the State Government’s Secretary.
Alhaji Nuhu in his letter has made known his intention to serve for a single tenure, as revealed by his Special Assistant on Domestic Affairs, Sufiyanu Gidado.
As written in the letter:
“Ordinarily, I should have remained up to the end of the tenure, but, with the current dampened spirit and waning zeal as it relates to my official engagements, my continued stay will not be fair and truthful to you as my brother and leader.
“In this regard, I feel sure that, Your Excellency will readily recollect the most recent one-on-one discussion we had, precisely, on Thursday, April 19th, 2018, in your office, where, among other issues, I expressed to you, my contemplation to ‘step aside’, if need be, in order to free my conscience.
“I regret to say that it has become necessary to yield to that inner calling, and may this development be in accordance with the blessed will and guidance of Allah (SWT), Ameen.”
